Death Metal

March 4, 2008 – 09:21 by Adnan Hodzic


Anyways, after seeing numerous YouTube to whatever comments something along the line "do all dreadlock guy have to listen to this death metal emo shit" or something very similiar to that. This morning I got a shout on last.fm that I just couldn't go by. I won't releaved this guys personal data but what he said in my shoutbox is: " do you ever listen to happy music?" What's happy music? Hm, ok let's see what is he listening to CKY and Placebo ... yea. What is CKY? All I know if it wasn't for Bam Margera this band wouldn't see the daylight. Second Placebo ... I seriously won't comment this. Now, you can turn down and mock emo, I don't give a shit about them, but don't get me involved. I really think that I'm a nice guy, but I wasn't always ...

Codename: peacenow

Ok so here's why I haven't talked about anything for last 3+ weeks. I usually bring my notebook to university, those who don't know what linux really is, come up and wanna see how it all actually looks like. Of course it's all great comments (which are usually because of the looks ... compiz-fusion) but I got few bad ones (at least in my book they are bad ones) some of them who see it booting, asked me does it need to boot that long everytime? Of course, you tell them it's mostly because it has bunch of stuff on it, along the "normal" system web server/apache and database server/mysql will come up as well. But just three weeks ago after getting my second "why does it take so long too boot" ... that was it, I had to do something. And besides that, I'd just like to add that, back on ...

Vmware working, not working after reboot – Debian Lenny/Testing

February 20, 2008 – 09:31 by Adnan Hodzic


Vmware is always giving me hard time. Just a recent one not working on 2.6.22.x kernels, now ... mayhem. I did turn my whole system up and down, last week, in one week I went over all desktop enviroments for Linux, at least all of the "mainstream" ones. Back to the topic, I would install it, I even followed my own instructions, but no help.  What the thing would do is that after configuring it, and it all works just fine, after eventual reboot, it would say it needs to be configured again. Man was this annoying. Some said, update to latest version, others said this and that. In the end I just said I'll sleep on it and fix it in the morning :) So, for the fact I knew "not_configured" that was pulling out those same message to configure it over and over again. Ok, configuring it after each reboot, well ...

FoolControl one month later

February 14, 2008 – 11:52 by Adnan Hodzic


As it goes or whole "system" itself, this is final v1.0 release. I'll talk about bugs in one second. Last month on 14th, I started this whole "foolcontrol" thing, and for 1 month period, all I can say is that ... yea I'm very pleased with the "results". Most of visitors come from North America and Europe. Windows is still leading OS with 51.20%, while Linux comes second with 34.82%. As for browsers, Firefox is defeinte leader with 40.36% while IE comes in third with 19.64% :) Average would be 27.9 unique visits for day, so for a blog yea that's good. As for the bugs, there was one people like to complain about, and that one is that poll its result, actually everything regarding it, text would be just ... "jagged" or screwed if you wish. So I just did a fix today. As it comes to another "big" bug. Konqueror on ...

White dreadlocks

February 9, 2008 – 13:43 by Adnan Hodzic


Besides my everyday problems (either becoming debian or fedora developer :) ) Another big thing is troubling me. I feel like it's really important to discuss and end this discussion once for all. And I have no intention of hurting anyone or anything. And I'd really like you to comment on this post, I really want to hear your opinion related to this topic. Ok here's the story, as many of you may know I used to have dreadlocks, I "lost" them due to life threating accident. So now 3 or what years later ... I'm tired of shaving my head, hair or no hair, 1 or 0. So I'm thinking of just letting my hair naturally get tangled and eventually ending up in dreadlocks. But now, I'm actually getting the second thoughts. First time I was basically a teenager, had 18-19 years when I had them done (I did/made them myself). ...
